Pocket Kitefoil FS3 4.1" x 18'.5 - 25 liters

«the real Skateboard»

The skater background of some members of the team has convinced us of the advantages of a shape that is as close to it as possible.

This special pocket board is equipped with a sophisticated construction and a minimum volume ideally placed to guarantee tolerance and pleasure in the progression. The FS3 gets all the benefits of a pocket board by pushing accessibility to its maximum. The experienced rider or the talented beginner who wants to ride in waves, freestyle and cruising will be delighted. This FS3 is characterized by its handling and its homogeneous and precise behaviour. In strapless the board is glued to the feet and is quickly placed in the curves.The pronounced concave provides perfect control, sharp and sharp curves. It is a product as radical as it is intuitive with a strong penchant for aerial and vertical moves.It comes in XS version for even more compactness, more technical, it will find its place under the feet of an experienced rider.

The characteristics

- Its volume of 25 L for dimensions of 126 cm 47 cm makes the FS-3 a board with high flotation capacity and extreme handling. This exclusive and redesigned shape makes the FS-3 particularly accessible, extremely efficient when manoeuvring at low speeds, and promotes low-range departures.

- Its Hull with a pronounced double concave allows to avoid the suction effect that one encounters on the classic hull boards. This results in faster acceleration, a smoother take-off, and allows you to stay stable and maintain your speed during touchdowns. Its powerful acceleration is amplified by a distribution of volumes on the rear and front, giving it an exceptional ability to float, allowing it to start easily and without sinking, even for large riders.

- Its next-generation progressive inverted rails allow for easy and effective jibes, and limit the impact of touch-ups during high heeling events such as loss of control and stall.

- Its high concave bridge allows absolute control over the toe tips during strapless sessions.

- Its design, identical to other foilboards in the Alpinefoil range, gives it optimal rigidity.

How our boards are built

Its closed-cell EPS core is digitally machined and successively clad:

- Fiber glass, a traditional material used in the manufacture of boards;
- Of carbon T700, arranged in the following 3 axes with recovery of forces on the housing to cope with the stresses of the foil

- a bio-polymer bamboo-fibre-epoxy composite applied longitudinally to the board, which provides a foilboard resilience property.This technology allows the board to accept session after session efforts without changing behaviour and thus avoid so-called "fatigue" breaks.

- a high-quality epoxy resin used in the manufacture of all these composites. This resin was chosen over another because its solvent-free base is not environmentally aggressive. Moreover, by its nature, it is not subject to the phenomenon of osmosis.

Its F-Box carbon housing with automatic game catch-up is integrated into the board during its construction and allows a solid connection between the deck and the hull.Carbon fibre reinforcements distribute the forces over a wide area thus increasing rigidity and response and improving the pilot/foil bond. Its perfect underrun results in an absence of drag and therefore a better glide performance.

 

Its fields were reinforced with Airex and then covered with carbon.

Its wide and comfortable pads allow precise contact with the board.

Its polyester finish and bi-component paint are covered with UV-resistant polyurethane varnish.

On deck, a layer of Airex, a closed-cell material characterized by extreme tolerance to damage, strengthens the foot support area.

Its 32 inserts for Alpinefoil footstraps placed at the front and rear allow multiple combinations of foot placement. One, two, or three footstraps, placed straight or in V, loose or adjusted as close as possible to the feet, will personalize the ergonomics of this foilboard according to the level, the type of practice, the conditions of navigation, the morphology and preferences of the pilot. The positioning range of the footstrap is 15 cm at the front and 10 cm at the back.

We have chosen modern, high-tech materials over other, more classic and less expensive ones to design a high-quality, high-performance and original foilboard that is as well suited to your foil progression.
